1. Overview

Thank you for choosing immerSUN. This intelligent device is a sensible and practical addition to your PV or Wind micro generation system. Water is heated via your existing immersion heater, using surplus power that would otherwise have been exported to the grid.

Please read and follow this guide to ensure many years of trouble-free operation and savings!

Key features

Heats water from your PV system or Wind Turbine

Effectively adjusts power levels to the immersion heater, keeping the exported power at virtually zero

The consumer no longer needs to be at home to use the free electricity, whatever the weather

No need to change the immersion heater

Suitable for all electrical microgeneration systems

Built-in hot water boost timer

Manual hot water boost function

Back-lit LCD display shows energy saved, output power and operating mode

Dual immersion heater control option

Internal multi-function relay in-addition to the modulated power output

Up to 4 devices can be daisy-chained for master / slave operation

MODBUS RS485 interface for system expansion and external data logging

Internal thermal protection

3 year product warranty

3. Installation

3.1 Mounting

Often, the most suitable location for the immerSUN is near to the consumer unit. Usually all the connections required are available here.

The following should be considered when deciding upon the most suitable location:

Close to the main incoming mains electrical supply of the property

Access to immersion heater supply cable (this is usually at the consumer unit)

Access to suitable supply via 16A MCB or 13A fused outlet

User access to immerSUN controls and visibility of LCD screen

Adequate ventilation – keeps vents clear and provide airflow around the unit

Cable access point – through the rear or bottom of the unit

Use the 3 screws and wall plugs provided to mount the immerSUN at the chosen location.

DO NOT BLOCK VENTS! The enclosure may get hot, always keep vents clear of obstruction and allow sufficient clearance from walls, ceilings and other objects. Observe minimum clearances as shown below.

100mm 0mm 50mm 100mm

3.2 Electrical Connections

Electrical connections should be made only by a competent person. Do not attempt to wire this unit if you are not a qualified or an experienced electrician. Installation may involve alterations to fixed wiring and opening the consumer unit, there is risk of death by electrocution.

Choose the most suitable cable entry points (rear or bottom) and make the electrical connections to the unit according to the appropriate wiring diagram (see section 3.4). Use the blanking plugs provided for unused cable entry points.

Alternative loads In some cases it may be desired to control the power to a load other than an immersion heater. The load MUST be a simple resistive load, e.g. an electric towel radiator, storage heater etc.

The load must not exceed 3kW and must not include digital or analogue timers, as they may be damaged by the proportional output control of the immerSUN.

IMPORTANT! Be sure to fully tighten terminals, checking the cables are securely clamped by the terminals and the cord grips. Failure to ensure good connection could result in fire or permanent damage to the unit. NOTE: The screw terminals are 'rising clamp' type.

Clamp Installation

Correct positioning of the clamp is vital to the operation and efficiency of the immerSUN. Incorrect installation may result in increased electrical costs to the user.

The clamp should be located at the main incoming grid supply to the building. This will be the supply from the main electric meter (NOT the PV generation meter). Close the clamp around one of the cables (Live or Neutral) from the meter, this can be at the meter location or inside the consumer unit.

IMPORTANT! Ensure the clamp is securely closed around the cable.

Connect the clamp wire to the CLAMP terminals inside the immerSUN. Don't worry about polarity.

The clamp wire can be extended if required, however due to the very small signal from the clamp, a maximum length of 3m is recommended. Longer lengths may affect the performance of the immerSUN.

4. Installer Settings

Once the unit is mounted and wired, the installer will need to set parameters as required for the particular installation. Before applying power to the unit the DIP switches will need to be set.

4.1 DIP Switch Settings

The default position of the DIP switches, is all four set to ON. For the majority of installations this will be the correct setting. However if slave units are connected then they may need to be set differently, see table below.
